Newcastle United are looking to bring in another Frenchman in the mould of Andre-Pierre Gignac.

The Daily Mail suggests that the Toon will make an offer of around £12million for the Marseille striker.

27-year old Gignac has previously attracted the attention of Manchester United, Arsenal, Fulham and Everton but it appears as though Newcastle, who are also being linked with Vitesse Arnhem's Wilfried Bony, are closing in.
